Re: Calendar - how do I stop the annoying birthday notifications??

Hi everybody, got a new Torch - whoopy, till the Birthdays came up.

Had a read to all the post, did that, done that, got the Tshirt.

Nothing works.

 

Just like to mention, I am a stunning blonde, but with brain. I have a BSC Hons in Computer Science and bride myself in troubleshooting - love to get into the bios, haha

 

BB and FB have to sort this out or I get another phone. Yeah right!!!!

 

Anybody with any bright ideas?

Hi BDS,

 

I forgot to say that if you have the "Blackberry Contacts Application" setting i mentioned disabled it only stops the birthdays being added over and over again.

 

If you have any birthdays in the calander before you changed the setting they will still be there, however you'll still have to delete them once, but they shouldnt reappear again after.

 

If you connect any facebook friends to you contacts after that, that contacts birthdays will be added, but again once its cleared the first time it wont reappear.

 

Hope that helps!

That little tick did it, brilliant. You expect it to be unticked auto, if you deselect FB Calendar, but it doesn't.

Thank you so much:smileyvery-happy:

Re: Calendar - how do I stop the annoying birthday notifications??

I took the check mark off of facebooks Blackberry calendar application and Blackberry contacts application, deleted the Bdays off the calendar and they are still showing up. The calendar goes on and one into addition years so how can you delete all of them   The birthdays that are showing up now have been deleted from 2012 and 2013. So what else can I try

Hi there. I have the same problem and have followed the advice you gave above but every time I reboot my phone the Facebook calendar entries come back. Is there a permanent solution please? Many thanks in advance!

Re: Calendar - how do I stop the annoying birthday notifications??

hi i did most of the above, (didnt need to delete facebook app) and it worked. 

 

however now when i add a new appointment/ birthday on the blackberry calender manually, it starts showing immediately in the alerts screen. in calender options i have already selected the day and time - start and end the reminder alert is selected at 5 minutes.

 

how do enter appointments and get the calender to show it only on the scheduled/ selected day and time. otherwise the entire screen is going to be crammed with all the appointments entered!!!
